Budapest – Etyek Wine Country Tour with Dinner
Exploring Hungary’s Etyek wine region from Budapest in half a day is nearly impossible unless you rent a car. This guided tour visits selected Etyek’s family-owned cellars, with four tastings at each included. With round-trip transport, a meal, the opportunity to see Hungary’s countryside, and a chance to learn about and purchase (own expense) Etyek’s wines, it lets you enjoy your tastings stress-free. This tour is ideal for wine enthusiasts who are pushed for time.
Book your time slot and after pickup at your central Budapest hotel, make the journey into the Etyek-Buda wine region by air-conditioned minivan.
Admire the rolling vineyards as your guide tells of Etyek’s white wines, commonly grown from sauvignon-blanc and pinot-gris grapes. Stop at two or three (depending on departure selected) family-run wineries, and sample four wines at each, alongside Hungarian snacks, and including a tasting of a local Törley sparkling wine. As you sip, learn the secrets behind each varietal from the winery owner and winemaker.
In between the wineries, see Old Wine Hill, a beautiful hillside dotted with disused wine cellars, while learning about the local soils.
Finally, savor a traditional 2-course Hungarian meal at a wine estate, enjoying it with additional wines at your expense. Your Etyek wine country tour concludes with a drop-off at your Budapest hotel.D
